Take It To the Edge

"It is not enough to place colors, however beautiful, one beside the other; colors must also react on one another. Otherwise, you have cacophony." - Henri Matisse


Beautiful edges are at the very heart of painting.  If you are not thinking about edges in your work, this workshop will change that.  Students will explore lost, found, soft, and hard edges as they create a small still life painting.



Bring your own items for making a more personalized composition or choose from items on hand. The workshop will start off with a Power Point and demonstration.


Pack a lunch for an informal break. Refrigerator and microwave on site. Subway is close by as well. Registration deadline is July 9.
